Working with Email Messages
Windows Live Mail transfers, or downloads, messages addressed to you from your email
server to your Inbox. After messages have been downloaded to your Inbox, they appear
in a list with the name of the sender and the subject displayed; unread messages appear
in bold, with an unread mail icon. The number of unread messages appears in
parentheses to the right of the Inbox folder. To preview a message, you click the message in the
list to display its contents in the Reading pane, or you can double-click the message to
open it in a separate window. You can also print the messages that you receive.
To receive and read an email message:
1. Click the Inbox folder in the Folder pane. Windows Live Mail downloads your
email messages from the email server. See Figure 6.

the Sync button does not appear on the toolbar, right-click the toolbar and click
Customize toolbar on the shortcut menu. Click Sync in the Available buttons list,
click the select single button
to move the button to the Current buttons list,
and then click the OK button.
Trouble? Your message list might differ. Just make sure that the Practice Test
message you sent is listed.
2. Click the Practice Test message in the Inbox. The content of the selected message
appears in the Reading pane, and to indicate that you have read the message, the
read mail icon now appears next to the name of the sender in the Inbox.
Replying to Email Messages
Some of the email you receive will ask you to provide information, answer questions,
or confi rm decisions. Instead of creating a new email message, you can reply directly to
a message that you received. As part of the reply, Windows Live Mail fi lls in the To and
Subject boxes, and includes the text of the original message.
